Fargo Driver Brian Dietz has been selected as the Minnesota Trucking Association’s (MTA) June 2012 Driver of the Month. Brian was nominated by Valley Cartage because of his extraordinary safety record and dedication to the positive public image of the professional truck driver.
As an MTA Driver of the Month, Brian will be one of 12 drivers entered in the 2012 Driver of the Year competition. Representatives from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the Minnesota State Patrol and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will then choose the annual winner. Brain and the other monthly winners will be honored at the annual Driver of the Year Awards Banquet held in January 2013.
A 10 year veteran with Valley Cartage, Brian has been a truck driver for over 20 years. “I like the interaction with customers and co-workers” said Brian. When asked if he had any advice for new drivers, Brain advises them to “relax and always keep watch of what is going on in front, behind and on the sides. Also, keep watch for obstructions and hazards – but also have fun!”
A hearty congratulations goes out to Brian on job well done!
